  • "The apartment is very well equipped with modern heating and warm water supply; all the appliances, you might want or need, in the kitchen and comfortable furniture."

    Like the description says though, the bedroom on the ground floor is right on the main road and - window closed, or not - you hear the traffic all night and day. Also - while super convenient, if you forgot to buy bread - there is a constant flow of traffic in and out of the Tesco's opposite. Unfortunately in the (ground floor) bedroom you can also hear the people in the other apartment upstairs walking around, which gets annoying, if you are on holiday and hoping to sleep in a bit. The downstairs (sublevel) bathroom is a tricky place, as it is basically a shower stall with toilet. There are no walls or curtains to separate the shower, so everything gets very wet. Over all nevertheless, it is a very nice property, fit for up to 4 adults and - if need be - a toddler as there is a child seat, and close enough to town and station etc. to walk there.

  • "We booked this property for a short break for a group of four."

    The property itself is easy to fin and the rooms all a good size and very comfortable - the kitchen with its large table was a favourite meeting/talking spot and the lounge very comfortable. The bedrooms were a good size and beds comfortable, although clothes storage is quite limited for anything other than a short break and the lower ground bedroom has quite a low ceiling for those that are tall. The bathrooms are as described although it would be beneficial to have some form of shower in there as a bath alone isn't hugely practical (but does look good), as it means you really need to share the downstairs wet room if you just shower. The wet room itself is slightly problematic as it gets and stays very wet, as does everything inside it, including things like toilet rolls - especially when four people are using it. Whilst it wasn't a huge problem and didn't detract from our stay it doesn't make for the best experience. Overall the place is really nice and in a convenient location for things in the area, and road noise wasn't an issue (not even the band in the social club directly opposite - unless you are a very light sleeper. As long as you are happy sharing a bathroom the convenience and comfort make this property worth considering.

The property

Nestled in the charming Cornish town of St Austell, just a stone’s throw away from local amenities is Hillcroft.

This delightful, ground-floor, duplex apartment is the perfect choice for small families or couples looking to explore the wonders of Cornwall thanks to its contemporary interior in a beautifully restored Victorian house; the house is adorned with elegant touches and sophisticated oak floors and boasts a fabulous location with access to the coast and the endless attractions woven throughout Cornwall.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home to find a smart and fully-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up delicious meals for the family which can be enjoyed at the table or alfresco on the private balcony with far reaching views across the rooftops.

When the evening draws to a close, wash off the day’s adventures with a soothing soak in the bathroom or an invigoration rain shower in the lower-ground-floor wet room before sloping off to sleep in either king-size bedroom; one on the ground floor and the other on the lower-ground-floor.

St Austell is a convenient base from which to explore all of Cornwall with a myriad of attractions, there is something for everyone!

The sandy beach and coastal golf course at Porthpean and the historic port of Charlestown, renowned for its tall ships and for being the filming location of the BBC’s Poldark are within a short drive.

Stay inland to explore the rainforest biomes and the world famous Eden Project and the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan which lie nearby, or make the most of the coast in the charming fishing village of Mevagissey or on the golden sorts of Pentewan Beach.

Find the maritime town of Fowey housing an array of independent shops, harbourfront restaurants and pubs, is slightly further afield but well worth the visit.

Make unforgettable memories at Hillcroft.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1127411, together sleeping up to six guests.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

Sitting peacefully in the beautiful county of Cornwall just a mile from the south coast with its numerous sheltered, sandy, beaches, you will find the historic market town of St Austell. Filled with a range of pubs and bars, scrumptious local eateries, St Austell has a train station on the mainline connecting you easily to Truro and on down to Penzance. Newquay can also be reached by train via a quick change at nearby Par. St Austell’s central location in Cornwall provides the perfect setting for your next holiday to the Southwest. Spend your days on exciting outings to such attractions as The Eden Project or the nearby historical port of Charlestown, where you can see artefacts recovered from local ship wrecks at the Shipwreck Treasure Museum. Head to Porthpean Beach for a tranquil walk along the soft sands or hire a kayak for a paddle in the calm, crystal clear waters, before pampering yourself at The Clearing Spa or enjoying a quick nine holes at St Austell Golf Club. Grab some fresh ingredients from the local supermarket on your way back to your holiday home for an evening of wining and dining indoors. St Austell is the ultimate setting for a fabulous coastal getaway.
